WATERLOO, Iowa (KWWL) -- The Salvation Army in Waterloo has restarted its hot meal program but with some adjustments to the pandemic.

The program runs every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 11:30  to 12:30. The food pantry at the Waterloo building is open every Tuesday and Thursday now instead.

Lots of changes though with temperature screenings, hand sanitizer, and social distance seating. 

Although, leaders say the best part of returning is the fellowship.

“While we’re socially distanced, it doesn't mean we have to be socially distanced. That still is important. Human contact is a really important thing and that's something we've really missed. That's something that folks who continue to come to our programs enjoy," said Major Shannon Thees of the Waterloo Salvation Army.

The program had been conducted as to-go orders only for the last few months and was held at the back of their building. 

The Salvation Army says they could always use more volunteers for the meal program and donations for other programs.
